Munro’s Books Restoration

In 1984, Wakefield led the restoration of this elegant 1909 neo-classical building to its original glory. We removed the T-bar ceilings to expose and rebuild by hand, the original plaster columns and arches in the 24-foot coffered ceilings and restored the original oak hardwood and terrazzo floors. In 2016, National Geographic cited Munro’s as the Number 3 bookshop in the world in its publication Destinations of a Lifetime.
